I haven't posted in a very long time but I've been a member since Oct. 2001 ! I the last year I got rid of my cones and domes Homebrew and experimented with Bose. Honestly, I would never pay retail for a pair of 901's but I got a bargain last year on a pair ($350 - cabinets were shot). After getting custom acrylic panels, having the Tulip stands powder coated, and getting rid of the God awful grille cloth, they look and sound awesome. I bought a Series 2 EQ off of eBay for $100 and gutted it completely. Using all "Audiophile Grade" compnents and a Toroidal Transformer to feed it and the XLR adapters boards, the 901's are all highs, nice mids, and deep Bass down to 40Hz with slight attenuation in room at 30Hz. A Bose F1 Subwoofer hits 20Hz with in room gain with ease. A 151se for the Center Channel (might be getting a single Series 2 to replace it. Two Bose 251's for the RR, & RL. Sounds amazing. The Eq is the secret sauce. When rebuilt correctly, they make beautiful music. Two PS Audio m700 monoblocks power the whole thing along with their Gain Cell DAC (SGCD)/Preamp. A sony UBP-X1000ES is my Disc Transport and Hi Resolution music player/streamer. A Sony STR-DN1080 contrills everything 5.1 balanced outputs that I tapped off of the fully balanced audio connections on the HDMI PCB inthe the Sony AVR. Show me love !
